    Hello guys, i have a revelation to tell you all. First, i am sorry to offend the donators who helped me get a dev. Kit. All of your efforts have not gone to waste as i have successfully hacked the psvita and run a cfw on it. As much as i want to release it in public, we are facing a huge problem, the 2.0 update that will be released on the 19th. It would not be ideal to release the cfw as of now for 2 reasons. #1 vita cfw isn’t stable as of now. Some games dosen’t run on the vita cfw and crashes randomly
    #2 if i release the vita now, all work will go to waste as sony will definitely patch and fix this exploit. Please be patient guys, a cfw for vita will come sooner or later.

    xeueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee im going to buy a vita now if felix just hacked the vita =D

    I want it but not for hacking, I would use it for legit developing :-), $1900 is a bit steep for a test device though. I wish Sony would make a Dev SDK that was more affordable but you could use your personal Vita with, (not the mobile suite ***)

  7. Laserking7 says:

    Actually, it’s not $1900, it’s closer to $2600 USD after conversion. I looked into buying it myself, but who has $2600 just lying around for a gaming device lol. We can only hope the unused port will be for video out, or that the next Vita will have a standard miniHDMI or something.
    Anyways, keep it up SKFU! Take all the time you need to make a polished product!

    Did anyone try to braze a hdmi or usb solder terminal to the consumer vita? Do you think it will be recognized without a modified firmware?

  9. wololo says:

    Not the real skfu, dont trust just based on nickname.

  10. skfu says:

  17. M_ELITE says:

    I would like to add a 12mp cell phone camera and a micro sd card slot to my Vita think it’s possible?

  18. gunblade says:

    cuz they was probly going have compasit cables like they did the psp go

  19. Jd8531 says:

    I think they did, there’s another port on the top right of the Vita under the flap. They’ve never confirmed what it actually does but I’m pretty sure that’s a special video out cable that Sony hasn’t used yet.

  20. Aces says:

    if you can find a way, good luck to you.
    if that was sarcasm, you failed.
